Once a year, when the long summer days and work filled weekends are over, the Concepts Collection team leaves behind the city lights in search of rest, relaxation and reflections on a busy season just past. Finding a suitably bespoke haven is never an easy task since everyone has their favourite favourites. Our most recent team outing was, however, an exception to the rule…

Our sister company Travel Concepts, well-known for their masterful skill in satisfying the most complex of refined tastes, suggested the fabulous, five star Majeka House in Stellenbosch for the occasion. Having received numerous accolades and praise from critics across the board, it didn’t take much convincing!

As avid style enthusiasts ourselves, our team members knew they were in for a true celebration of the senses when they arrived at the private garden estate. With various suites recently undergone a stylish renovation, the team excitedly explored almost every single room – including those with their very own swimming pool! As it was terribly cold and wet outside, we decided to give the heated pool and spa a miss this time and made a bee-line for the cozy bar with the crackling fire place. Tea & coffee were enjoyed alongside macaroons and tasty cheeseboards, swiftly followed by the customary glass of bubbly.

The team had to tear themselves away from the warmth of the fire place to don their finest for pre-dinner drinks around the Grand Piano. To capture the fanfare, we invited Marianne Jonker, one of the industry’s leading wedding and family portraiture photographers, to take some snap shots of the team dressed for success in the suitably sumptuous interior of Majeka House.

Majeka House’s interior design and décor is absolutely world class. Acclaimed as an opulent five-star property, Majeka House has been lauded with an A’ Design Award, so taking its place amongst the planet’s most esteemed designer establishments. “I absolutely loved the effortless blend of quirky 1960’s designer touches with up-to-date glamour!” said our MD Christina on the stylistic approach to Majeka House’s interior

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Makaron, this boutique establishment’s lauded restaurant & winner of the most stylish restaurant in the country in 2011 at the Eat Out Awards! The glamorous interiors are a mix of contemporary statement pieces, offset old furniture reworked and revived with sleek fabric or a gloss of paint, to create a visually stimulating environment in which to indulge in a menu of modern classics by head chef Tanja Kruger.

The Lavish dinner party was followed by retiring to the cigar lounge where an extended evening of a team sing-a-longs lead by our resident crooner Hannes Loubser carried on by the fire place till the early hours the next morning. Needless to say, breakfast was a slow start the following day, but again Majeka House and Makaron more than impressed with the lavish offering of delicious pastries, Scotch Oats (yes, these are oats served with whisky!) and the team favourite, Royal Eggs Benedict served with smoked salmon.

In our view, Majeka House oozes quiet luxury, lavishly-appointed in historic Stellenbosch. The décor, the food, the wine, the owners – all these stylish factors make Majeka House the perfect boutique accommodation from which to explore the famous surrounding winelands and internationally acclaimed wineries.
